BMI View:

We expect oil production in Gabon to fall to 241,000b/d in 2012 and decline to 234,000 b/d by 2016, as falling output from mature fields sustains a downward trend for what was once the third largest oil producer in Africa. Attempts by the government to improve fiscal incentives and reduce its presence in the country's upstream sector have been undermined by ongoing labour disputes that led to the majority of the country's oil production being shut down for several days in 2011. We do, however,
highlight upside risks to our outlook. A final investment decision on a new refinery would allow Gabon to become an exporter of refined products, while increased deepwater exploration may be enough to raise reserves estimates and offset falling onshore volumes.

The main trends and developments we highlight for Gabon’s oil & gas sector are as follows:

- BMI expects oil production to fall from 241,000 barrels per day (b/d) in 2012, to 234,000b/d in 2016, as fields mature. However, should tensions between labour unions further impact on exploration or production, investments may move elsewhere in the region and thereby accelerate the decline in output.
